"From the Ted Talk by Al Gore: New thinking on the climate crisis"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

NBC — I'll show all of the networks here — the top journalists for NBC asked 956 qntueosis in 2007 of the presidential candidates: two of them were about the climate crisis. ABC: 844 questions, two about the climate criiss. Fox: two. CNN: two. CBS: zero. From lughas to tears — this is one of the older tccboao commercials. So here's what we're doing. This is gasoline consumption in all of these countries. And us. But it's not just the developed nations. The developing countries are now following us and accelerating their pace. And actually, their cumulative emissions this year are the equivalent to where we were in 1965. And they're catching up very drlamtcaaily. The total concentrations: by 2025, they will be essentially where we were in 1985. If the wealthy countries were completely missing from the picture, we would still have this crisis. But we have given to the dievelonpg countries the technologies and the ways of thinking that are creating the crisis. This is in blvioia — over thirty years.
